Greg Melick embarked on the prodigal road to gambling and booze as a mere teenager, after winning the daily double at Werribee and spending the lot on good red wine. He ultimately returned to the straight and narrow, achieving the rank of ADF Major General, Senior Law Counsel, Master Wine Judge and Officer of Australia AO. Melick now grows his own, he remains besotted with les grands vignobles de Bourgogne, the illustrious Pinot Noir of Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune. There are few places in the world, more akin to the 1er Grand Cru style of Pinot Noir, than the temperate pastures along Tasmania's River Derwent. It was here in 2002, amongst the woodland idylls of the apple isle, that Melick established Pressing Matters, a meagre four hectares of superior European clones Pinot Noir. Mr Melick has come full circle, this time exchanging his wager in good wine, to win the highly coveted Royal Melbourne James Halliday Trophy for the finest Pinot Noir in Australia...

Leo Buring Clare Valley Riesling CONFIRM VINTAGE

Riesling Clare Valley South Australia
Of all the grape varietals Riesling is the one that is most expressive of regionality. Minute changes in soil, climate and aspect are directly reflected in theavours found in the final wine. The team at Leo Buring work closely with their viticulturists to identify the best vineyards, the choicest blocks and the best rows within each. Lime bouquets, florals and orange blossom, on the palate comes a rich round wine with flavours of sweet citrus and apple, lemon oils and honey, melons and musk. Appealingly dry yet vigorously fruit driven, it lingers at the close on a note of floral citrus and crisp mineral.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$239.00
Light straw, lime hues. Calico cotton, lifted, full, floral notes, the first yellow freesias of spring and a hint of daphne. Restrained rapier acidity underlies bright, green, fresh squeezed lime, citrus blossom, structural backbone of sun baked, crystalline quartzite provides an enduring minerality which persists and tantalizes with mouth watering natural acidity. A compelling Clare Valley Riesling of opulence and structure.
